Blaze your trail by building your Dreamforce agenda in advance.

Dreamforce is almost here! Now that Agenda Builder is live, it’s time to plan your 4 perfect days of Dreamforce. With over 2,700 sessions, you have a lot to choose from, but I especially want to get you excited about all of the sessions featuring our new product: Philanthropy Cloud! Philanthropy Cloud is an entirely new social impact platform available to companies that helps their employees find personal opportunities to make a difference, connect to the nonprofits they admire, and have a complete profile of their impact.

This is a new digital marketplace where employees can engage with causes they are passionate about, helping to transform businesses into community success platforms. Whether you’re hoping to improve your company’s CSR goals, recruiting and retention, or marketing and brand awareness – Philanthropy Cloud can help. See how Philanthropy Cloud can put your company’s values to work. Hear from a current customer on how CSR drives business success, and learn about how we are working with United Way to mobilize workplace giving and create more connected communities.

If you’re a nonprofit, learn how to leverage Guidestar to supplement your information in Philanthropy Cloud, providing more transparency, and enabling users to make better decisions and increasing their charitable giving.

Here are all of the keynotes and sessions related to Philanthropy Cloud. Make sure to save your space at these on agenda builder. Take a look below!
